Hi dhot501,

I am not a big user of MapInfo, I do not think that The MIF or TAB file can be set with a password. Just wondering about your application, does it have to be portable with the data distributed together?

Thanks.

hi dhot501..

im kinda interested with your idea combining vb6 with mapinfo..
coz i using mapinfo and autocad everyday..
But do the vb6 is good enough to protect your data?..
may i ask u?..how many user n userlevel for your system?..
currently im trying to combined it with ASP and Coldfushion but got a little prob with it..lol..still trying to fix it..
my opinion is better using webform interface than vb6..
more secured is guess..
i tried prototype it b4 using vb6 but when it comes to security,ouch..
failed..combining vb6+ms access+mapinfo is failure for me..
not a good programmer is guess..

maybe im oot your topic but its ok to share opinion..
sharing is caring lor..
 ;D ;D
